DAWSON — The Blackjacks, backed by a combined 44 points from Justine Lee and Katarina Kuhlmann, defended their home court Thursday by upending Lac qui Parle Valley 60-46, essentially assuring Dawson-Boyd the Camden North Conference title game.

The Blackjacks are now 12-3 in conference play, one game better than LQPV with just one game to play. Dawson-Boyd finishes its conference schedule with a home game on Tuesday against Renville County West, while the Eagles are at Canby today in their conference finale.

Lee led all scorers with 24 points and the junior also supplied the Blackjacks (15-3) with 8 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals. Kuhlmann followed with 20 points — aided by a trio of 3-pointers — and made a game-high 4 steals as Dawson-Boyd forced 15 turnovers in winning its fifth straight game.

Andrea Lee grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds, Kelly Husby another 9 and Sadie Zaiser 8 for Dawson-Boyd.

Kaitlin Connor’s double-double of 22 points and game-high 11 rebounds sparked the Eagles (13-6). Alaysia Freetly added 12 points and 7 rebounds, Kelsea Lund 10 points and Aundrea DuFrane 5 assists.
